Alternative Offers

If you have applied for an undergraduate degree or postgraduate degree course at the University of Wolverhampton and are unsuccessful in gaining a place on your preferred course, we will always endeavour to make you an alternative offer for another suitable course. 


How we select your Alternative Offer

The University assesses each applicant on an individual basis. When making an alternative offer, we select a course that we believe will be relevant and of interest to you. This decision is based on a number of factors such as the content of your personal statement; the subjects you have studied; the qualifications you have achieved; and any work experience that you have gained.

Alternative Offer Information Sessions

We recognise that the degree you choose to study at our University is a big decision, and want to support you as much as we can to make that decision.

If you've received an alternative offer from us, but are unsure of your options or how to proceed, we provide regular Alternative Offer Information Sessions. These sessions are specifically designed to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.

At these sessions you will:

  • find out more information about the courses that we offer
  • find out what different careers these courses can lead to
  • discover opportunities to progress to a postgraduate degree as another route to achieving your chosen career pathway (eg. nursing, social work)
  • meet some of our friendly staff who will be there to respond to your individual questions and potential concerns
  • have the opportunity to ask academic staff any questions you may have.

To attend one of these sessions, simply fill in the booking form below. Please ensure you include your student number, the course you originally applied for; the alternative offer course you have been given and also briefly outline what information you would like to gain from the session you attend.

Changing your Alternative Offer

Whilst we make every effort to choose an appropriate alternative offer course that we believe you will enjoy, we understand that we may not always get this right!

If you are not fully satisfied with the course that is offered to you, our friendly team of staff within The Gateway can offer further advice and guidance. Drop in, call: 01902 321 032 or email: gateway@wlv.ac.uk.

We can consider changing your offer to another course, providing you meet the entry requirements for that course, and there are places available. To do this, contact our admissions department by email: admissions@wlv.ac.uk stating your full name, student number and the course you would like to be considered for instead of the offer made to you.
